correspondent, the sexy rick leventhal. >> correct. >> a block. the lede. that's the first story. can someone come get me out of here. >> never. was the coming attraction a major infraction? a new zealand man, is there any other kind, rick? he has been refunded his money to the film "jack reacher" after he claimed he was ripped off because a scene from the trailer didn't make the final cut. he said in his complaint, the explosion where the whole cliff comes down was the defining part of the ad that made me really want to go see the movie. aside from having tom cruise in it they say the stunt was a split-second scene omitted from a 130-minute long movie. but the asa ruled on the cantankerous kiwi. here is tom cruise trying to sit on a counter. >> that is a problem. >> no wonder kate left him. any i what, rick. >> yes. >> do you admire this guy or disgusted by this or are you dating this guy? >> what a waste of time. what was it $12? >> you don't believe in the principal? you are a reporter. >> it had to be the principal of the thing. he opened the flood gates. now anybody can ask for their mon
will be checking back in with you and with rick leventhal on this story. we will go with fox news contributor mark furman who is with us. mark, we have two stories developing, obviously the ricin story that's resulted in an arrest and the new fact that the law enforcement has keyed in on at least two people here in boston. >> let's go with the first one. the letters with the ricin inside of them that were addressed to the senator and to the president, now we know they were postmarked before the bombings. so i think that would possibly bring it down from connection. and he also signed the letters in those poisonous letters with his initials, and he's a repetitive nuisance to washington, d.c. i think we can separate the two now. now going with the press conference that's been continually cancelled, the first thing is we hear they had an arrest earlier today and there was a leak or it's reported there was a leak. i think they need to find out where that leak was, and i think the press conference that they did schedule has been cancelled repeatedly because i think the investigation is moving rapidly a
was the word we heard late tonight. rick leventhal monitoring developments all day. is he live in boston with me as well. rick, you broke the news of these two persons of interest. what more you can report? >> well, obviously, bill, the focus here has to be on capturing the person or persons responsible for this horrific attack on the boston marathon that killed three and wounded nearly 180 others. we have seen the photographs of two men who federal authorities are looking for as persons of interest. possible suspects in those twin bombings on monday. we are not sharing those photographs with our viewers yet because the fbi is not sharing those photographs with the public. we don't want to jennifer dyes this investigation. but, i have seen these pictures. they are very clear. there are two men, one appears to be carrying a backpack. the other appears to have a bag. these bags match the description that the federal authorities have told us are believed to be carried the two bombs on monday. again not showing the photos until the federal authorities ask the media to share these pictures be

in washington. but first want to go to rick leventhal live in boston. rick, i think it says an awful lot that the fbi is releasing these images now. good evening. >> good evening, bill. clearly the fbi and the other members of the joint terrorism task force have spent the better part of the last 48 hours trying to identify and capture these two men on their own. and they weren't able to do that. and that's what clearly propelled them to release these images weighing, letting these guys know that they were being hunted against trying to generate more intel and more information and possibly names and addresses for the two guys that we are now seeing in this video and in these still pictures as you mentioned they are only being identified as suspects number 1 and 2. number one in the dark jacket with the dark hat with khakis and a backpack. subject number 2 with a white hat, worn backwards also wearing a dark jacket and jeans. he, suspect number 2 set down the backpack at the site of the second explosion and then went walking west on boylston street after planting the bomb. again, the fbi e

other quick note. the pictures that rick leventhal -- rick leventhal said they're going through, do you think -- is a your hunch that in the various video images of crowns early on that the culprit or culprits will be seen? that they will be a much the crowds? >> there is no doubt. if you looked at how many people were out there collecting evidence for the police, everybody with the cellphone, everyone who took a picture, there were collecting evidence. all of it is available to police . i can guarantee you that those individuals will have been captured through hundreds of still images and thousands of video images. so we will have more video on these criminals than probably any other criminals in a major criminal event like this. probably the most recorded crime in american history. neil: we shall see. thank you very, very much. of course you probably heard a good deal about the type of weapons used in the attacks in boston, will work, you know, essentially pressure cookers. only in these pressure cookers, not food, ball bearings, razor blades, you name it. once they exploded they did
: all right. in a minute we will go to rick leventhal with the very latest. some pretty interesting developments. first, staples co-founder on whether there will be any business fallout from all of this. slowdown. what do you think? >> we have one of the best, if not the best in the country. located two blocks from the accident scene stores will not be open for days. hundred $50,000. neil: do you really? >> that hurts. very big in the marathon. two stores literally a couple blocks of the other way. we are worried cavatinas are right, people are right. once you get through that, you feel for all the people. then you look at the economic benefit. a lot of the people that work in these buildings around there, private equity firms, hedge funds all located in the buildings are shut down. neil: it's hard for them. but naturally unspeaking about whether it gives people pause to say, well, i don't need to get this item. >> i was thinking about that. i think it has a lot to do with what it turns out. a lot of rumors today that this was an american perpetrated thing on tax day. antitax as som
of that day. rick leventhal live from copley square with more on that. rick? >> victims being honored across boston, but certainly here in copley square with a powerful memorial assembled with items, many moved from fear the site of the blast just down boylston street and many more added over the past few days. they include many flowers, of course, and hand made posters and also pretty powerful scene. dozens of pairs of running shoes hanging from one of the metal barricades here. many of them are handwritten messages of boston's strong and also photos of the three people who were killed in the blast and also the police officer who was gunned down allegedly by one of the tsarnaev brothers. there are hundreds, possibly thousands of people who have been filing past and through this memorial in copley square. they say it's an important part of the healing process. >> felt it was important to show our support for boston and for the whole community and the country. we're still here for you. we're all thinking about this every day. >> it's immensely sad and it's strange that it looks so peaceful an
and our own rick leventhal. he's live at the scene. what's the latest at this hour, rick? >> before we get to the pictures i want to bring our viewers up to speed on what the fbi and other officials told us earlier this evening at a news conference. we got our first up-close look at the crime scene as the fbi response team and other investigators are combing through the area and collecting the evidence. they told us earlier tonight that they believe the bomber used these pressure cooker canisters and put them in some type of black nylon bag or backpack and they were asking the public for assistance in providing photographs of someone carrying what looked to be a heavy bag at the finish line of the boston marathon. we got photos that appear to be crime scene evidence photographs of what we are told is bomb number one. it appears to be a canister, a metal canister where you can see imprints on it, serial numbers. there's also a shredded nylon bag or backpack in those photos and what appear to be ball bearings or metal of some kind. we also got photos from our affiliate in boston which appear
, some moving to temporary location so is they can open. and rick leventhal who was here when the storm hit, and he is in bay head. and shannon is live in d.c. where emergency management officials redrew the nation's flood maps after superstorm sandy. that triggered more insurance problems bought thousands of homes previously on safe ground are now in the flood zone. that's all ahead on this special edition of "studio b." >> but first, the feds and local law enforcement in the state of texas say they high alert after a killer or killers gunned down another district attorney and his wife in their home. the assassination of this particular man, the kaufman county texas d.a., mike mclellan, is the second killing of a prosecutor in a small town of 100,000 people in less than two months. weeks ago mclelland vowed to hunt down and exile whoever shot his deputy in a parking lot of the courthouse in january. but on saturday night police found mclelland and his wife in their home. investigators from the fbi, atf, and other agencies, now on the case. that are also stepping up security at the coun
behind us here. rick leventhal with me now in boston. let me repeat the tweet that boston police sent out 30 minutes ago. despite reports to the contrary, there has not been arrest in the marathon attack. we're going to work through all this stuff. we'll take our time. we're going to get it right. but at the moment, what we are reporting is the news that crossed at 1:30 this afternoon. it may very well be that police have an image of a suspect that they want to talk, to but we can not say whether or not they've identified the person or whether or not that person has been taken into custody. >> there has been a startling series of events today, bill. and unfortunately, some of those event may have played out the wrong way. we've had a lot of reports that an arrest has been made and apparently at least according to the f.b.i., no arrest has yet been made. we've had a lot of reports that there may be images, very clear images of a young man putting down a black bag in the spot where one of those two bombs went off on monday afternoon. we haven't heard that wet from -- yet from the f.b.i. tha
with the latest on the investigation. but, first, let's get to rick leventhal who is live in times square. what more did the cops say about this plan? >> well, shep, they say it could have been devastating. even with some the toughest security on the planet. the bombers could have done serious damage here in times square even though the nypd had fully mobilized counter terrorism units soon after the marathon bombing they flooded the city and times square with extra officers and heavily armed tactical teams. but the mayor admits that it might not have stopped the pair who had another pressure cooker bomb like the onessed i boston as well as five other powerful pipe bombs. >> the investments that we have made in counter terrorism operations, technology and intelligence help reduce the possibility of a successful terrorist strike. but they certainly do not eliminate it. nothing can do that. we don't know if we would have been able to stop the terrorists had they arrived here from boston. we are just thankful we didn't have to find out that answer. >> meanwhile, a senior federal law enforcement off
husband and his brother were the accused bombers. rick leventhal on breaking news duty live tonight in boston. what more do we know about this d.n.a.? >> shepard, we're told that female d.n.a. was found on bomb components. sources say no conclusions can be drawn. the investigation is is far from over. as you mentioned, sources, federal law enforcement sources also telling us that a woman could have unwittingly handled pieces of the bomb before it was assembled and had nothing to do with the marathon attack. according to the "wall street journal," this female d.n.a. prompted agents today to visit the home where tamerlan's widow is living with her parents, seeking d.n.a. samples from catherine russell who converted to islam after meeting tamerlan in 2009 and is the mother of his 3-year-old daughter. agents spent 90 minutes in the home. they left carrying items with what looked like a computer and a ziploc bag filled with personal items. they drove off in a caravan with russell and her attorney. she has since returned home. and also tonight, shepard, we can tell you the confirmed -- i'
in boston, massachusetts, and fox news is here we're joined by rick leventhal. rick you had a chance to talk to witnesses. tell me what they said. >> everyone is describing this as horrific including a trauma surgeon. we can tell you that the fbi has taken the lead in this investigation. as they do in any case of suspected terrorism involving american lives. we can tell you the fbi evidence response team is at the location at the crime scene collecting every possible shred of evidence and will be there flute the night documenting every inch where those two blasts went off collecting every shred of what might be evidence so they can catch whoever is responsible. the fbi also reviewing surveillance video to determine if there images of the potential bomber or bombers. there are reports a possible person of interest is in a hospital here in the area reported as a saudi national, a young man who according to some reports has been questioned and is being cooperative with investigators. we can't confirm that in a news conference, the governor and other officials said they could not and would not s
officials request they not gather outside in large groups and take cover for the night. >> rick leventhal thank you very much. we've been reporting of a person of interest in this case. now, he was important to listen to the words of the authorities this afternoon as they talked about this matter. there are legal issues at work. there are confidentiality and matters surrounding that at work. it's interesting the way authorities spelled it out. the police commissioner said despite what what has been report there'd is no suspect in any hospital. and there is not. sources tell fox news there is no suspect. but there is a person interest of. there are reasons this saudi national in the united states on a student visa now in a hospital, we're told, and being treated, we're told is a person of tr. when asked after that, other authorities whether there is a person of interest in this case they said we'll not comment on an ongoing investigation. they would not knock that down. our chief intelligence correspond jent live in washington for us early on this tuesday morning. sem manhattanics are impo
responsible will be caught and will face justice, megan. >> rick leventhal. thank you. as rick just reported the fbi is using special facial recognition software as it poors over hundreds perhaps more photographs and surveillance tapes trying to identify the person or people responsible for this attack. the sophisticated technology may be the most powerful tool they have to help put a anytime face trace galt gear live in our west coast newsroom to explain how it works. >> while the debate goes on, megyn, on whether to release the surveillance pictures of potential suspects. we can tell you that authorities are saying that they are, quote, pretty clear of the man's face. pretty compelling stuff they say. and it appears to be a younger man. so let me show you how this facial recognition technology works. it's all about measuring the facial features. for example, the eye socket depth, cheekbone shape, the distance between the eyes, the nose width and the jaw line length. they take all these numbers and come up with numerical code or facial print. not the size of a fingerprint but still very ver
in times square, and sheryl outside fortress wall street, and rick leventhal in an anxious boston. we start with rick. >> a number of developments this afternoon, including a boston globe report that investigators found a circuit board believed to have triggered the bombs. they were made with pressure cookers, a style of explosive device found in afghanistan and pakistan. we learned that the saudi national who was tackled running from the scene, whose apartment was searched, has been cleared as a possible suspect, and they have re-opened part of boylston street as the shrink the crime scene and focus their efforts on the bomb site. we know investigators and atf and fbi are documenting every inch of payment, collecting every shred of possible evidence and they're asking for the puck's help to provide video or pictures taken near the finish line. it's call the most complex crime scene in the history of the city and the police are asking for breathing room. >> we want you to be vigilant. there's no reason not to come into the city. but we do have a threat and we're working diligently to try to
leventhal and the report on two suspects in the boston marathon bombing. rick, i cut you off. go back to the pictures you were telling me about that you yourself have seen about the two that are persons of interest. >> well, in a nutshell, greta, the law enforcement community has photos that have been distributed for law enforcement eyes only. they are on the lookout for two persons of interest, possible suspects in the marathon becoming. i have seen the photos but we are not going to show the photos and limit description of the photos because we don't want to jeopardize the fbi's investigation. the important point here is to catch whoever is responsible for the horrific events that happened behind us on boylston street. the fbi schedule add news briefing earlier this afternoon and they canceled that. then they were going to release a statement and they canceled the statement. they had a statement earlier today that reprimanded the media for miss reporting an arrest was made and a suspect was in custody in this particular case. it seems pretty clear the fbi is focusing their efforts o
but police, fbi agents and rangers were all investigating. rick leventhal joins us more w.more on this, i'm seeing a brand new release informing the public on this. >> it seems like the d.a.knew he was a target. he said he was prepared for the worst. he also said he carried a gun while walking the dog. and apparent lit wasn't enough. he said he took care answering the door, somehow one gunman got n he killed the d.a., and his wife report lid with an assault rifle. >> it's unnerving. the community at large we're starting to assure the community we are still providing public skpaift will be able to do that. >> you know, i gave a lot of information there about other people who have been killed. colorado head of corrections, there. and then, also the assistant to mcclellan. no word on any connection but what are they looking at? >> none seem random. both men appear to have been targeted. it's not definitely collected. after january 31, mcclellan suggested white supremacists might to be blame and called the killers scum. >> i hope the people that did this are watching because we're very confid
they have problems with the plan. our senior correspondent rick leventhal is in the studio tonight it sounds like people in support of gun laws have problems and the people who are against restrictive gun laws have problems. >> they do and this bill very very restrictive. i want to give you one example. if you want to buy any rifle or shotgun or ammo for those weapons moving forward in connecticut. you will need a long gun eligibility certificate. in order to get that, you have to take a firearm safety course. be fingerprinted, and then undergo a national criminal background check. the bill does not ban high capacity magazines despite pressure from newtown families. you won't be able to buy new mags if you have any holding more than 10 rounds you have to register them. >> turning off the spigot is critical. you have got to draw the line and say from this point forward all sales will be prohibited. >> the new legislation will also require universal background checks for the sale of all firearms. restrictions for the mentally disabled and will add more than 100 guns to the banned weapons list.
be in custody. we'll find out shortly. >> neil: all right. rick, thank you. rick leventhal. now to mike tobin to the boston federal courthouse where officials ordered an evacuation. what the heck was going on? >> i tell you, all of the chaos that we saw here at the courthouse is probably an example of just how high tension is here in boston. certainly as an example of how high the tension is among the media. i can show you the big crush of media out in front of the federal courthouse right now. it's also an example of what happens when the general public is brought in the mix, armed with iphone cameras and security cameras and communicating fast and loose over the internet. you had all of those tips, that an arrest had been made, not been made. by that time, everyone crushed here. they were all jockeying for position trying to get into the right spot to get any kind of vehicle that came into the courthouse. then all at once, the federal homeland security police officers came out, u.s. marshals came out, pushing everybody back across the street with great haste. the marshals came out armed wit
sharing with fox news rick leventhal just moments ago pictures of two men who they are now searching for. one of them carrying a backpack that appears to match the one used in the attack. meanwhile, the scare in washington d.c. is widening. a letter addressed to president obama tested positive for the deadly poison, ricin, today. this after senator roger wicker of mississippi was targeted just last night. the deadly contents above letters was detected before being delivered to the white house and the capital. a sweeping defeat for gun-control advocates today. the senate voted against that to -- compromised amendment and would have extended background checks, against the assault weapons ban and against an amendment to ban high-capacity magazines. president obama appearing with former congresswoman--foot -- debbie giffords, the town victim's family members at the white house describing this as a shameful day for washington. blasting both the national rifle association and the senate. >> the gun lobby and its allies will fully lied about the bill. they claim that it would create some sort o
in chief, and this president has been put in that position probably more often than he would like. to rick leventhal in boston, with reaction to that visit and to a lot of different types coming together. >> the president talked tough inside the cathedral, telling the packed enter faith -- interfaith audience, theypied the wrong city, boston. he said boston will rise and will run again. a lotf folks lining up here before dawn but didn't all make it inside. the line was simply too long and there wasn't room even though e cathedral holds up to 2,00 people. the fortunate who made it inside heard from bon's mayor, heard from the governor of massachusetts, also from cardinal sean o'malley, and the president who says this is not only person for him but for millions of americans. >> we may be momentarily knocked off our feet, but we'll pick ourselves up. we'll keep going. we will finish the race. [applause] >> the president said boston has opened its heard to the world and the world opened its heart to boon vowing the perpetrators will be caughtnd face justice. >> i'm here today on behalf of the

on tender hooks? we go to times square and rick leventhal. >> senior law enforcement officials are not convince thread was a plot. there were no specific plans to attack new york city but according to the mayor and the police commissioner the century so ifing brother told the fbi they decided on the spur of the moment to drive to new york city to times square, and set off the remaining explosives. that included another pressure cooker bomb that went offty boston marathon, and five other explosions. they were in fact pipe bombs. new york city has mobilized his counterterrorism operations there was a very heavy police precious in times square, and these two guys were among the most wanted men in america, but there's no guarantee that anyone would have been able to stop them in time. >> the investments we made in counterterrorism operations and intelligence, helped reduce the possible of a successful terror strike but they too not -- eliminate that. nothing can do that. we don't know if we could have stopped the bomber. we're thankful we didn't haven't to find out. >> they got a v
who has been waiting months. his story is a lesson for all of us. before that, rick leventhal is in new jersey was more on the slow recovery. to you. >> reporter: so many homes like these and communities up and downhe jersey shore look very much today like they did in the days after hurricane sandy it. in desperate need of repairs or just seein repairs being made for the first time. a lengthy disputes with the insurance companies. >> a very surreal thing. hard to imagine we used to live here. we had a life and now it is gone. >> reporter: they but this small bungalow near t jersey shore eight years ago just before they get married. >> the water came from underneath, rushing underneath and it hit the top player out through here which was my husband's office. >> reporter: the house was flooded during super storm sandy. engineers say the place must be torn down and rebuilt from the ground of. >> we will be for the night because the storm is coming in never think that's the last night the you will sleep in your bed. that is a last night you will,. >> reporter: even though this cou

but also these images that i mentioned a moment ago. rick leventhal has been working his sources tonight and throughout the day today. the president what a touching ceremony it was. now, rick, the focus goes back to this investigation. what is this sense and what are you hearing about where we move next on this story? >> well, clearly, bill, they wouldn't be releasing any video or photos of potential suspects. if they didn't need the public's help. and finance likely that the fbi was trying to locate suspicious individuals on its own without involving the public for fear that if they did involve the public seeing the pictures on television would alert these suspects and that they would go into hiding. it may well be that they have had a tough time locating, tracking down these people. and clearly now, if they are releasing the images, then they do need the public's help. what's going to happen next, once this video and these photos are released is that they will be inundated with tips. some valid perhaps. many, perhaps, invalid or of no help to investigators but all of them have to be ch
. rick leventhal now live on fox top story from boston. what more do we know about the apparent release of the suspect's body, rick. this has just been released. >> right, shepard. the medical examiner has determined tamerlan's cause of death but won't relegal it until the body is claimed. catherine russell is the next of kin. she should be the one to claim his body. she has made it clear she doesn't want anything to do with claiming his body and wants the tsarnaev family to do it instead. in a statement released his bye her attorneys she said that she and her family continue to be deeply saddened by the harm that has been caused and goes on to say that she will continue to meet with law enforcement as she has done for many hours over the past week and provide as much assistance to the investigation as she can. of course, shepard, she could a key here, knowing tamerlan better than almost anyone on the planet. >> shepard: now the investigation into possible help. it sounds like investigators are making progress. >> well, the fbi certainly wants to know where tamerlan was and who he met w
leventhal is live in new jersey with more on this rick, how are things looking down there? >> reporter: you know what, jenna, on some parts of the jersey shore is looks like the storm just hit. thousands of home they haven't started rebuilding process or now beginning repairs. many cases end lengthy battles how much the insurance will recover. we found one couple who may have to declare bankruptcy because they need $140,000 to rebuild the home and insurance company is only offering 28 grand. >> it is hard to man that we used to live here. that we had a life and now it is gone. >> you leave for a night because the storm is coming and you never think, these the last night you're going to sleep in your bed, you know. that is the last night you will come home. that is the last time you will cook indidder in your house or watch a movie or, hang out on your deck, you know? have people over. it is done. and, it is just upsetting that the insurance companies aren't doing what they're supposed to be doing. >> they're dragging their feet, you know. they're submitting low offers to the point where, li
students, first-graders, and six adults killed at the school that day. rick leventhal is on the story this morning. do the restrictions, new ones in connecticut do they have support from republicans and democrats? >> reporter: they do. there has been a vote yet. we heard from a republican supporter who said the issue should rise above politics. the democratic house speaker said it was important to act quickly and intelligently. there was tremendous amount of pressure from newtown families and gun opponents after a sandy hill shootings by a troubled 20-year-old left 26 dead including 20 first-graders t has far-reaching provisions. adding 100 new assault weapons to guns banned by the state. it will require universal background for sale of all firearms. certification for buying ammo and long guns, requiring fingerprints and firearms training. weapon offender registry, first-of-its-kind in the state. restricted ownership for mentally disabled. stricter storage rules and ban on future large capacity magazine sales. >> turning off the spigot is critical. you have got to draw the line and sa
